Jarod Little Talks About His Future

Jarod Little is pondering his future. Right now, Ouachita State in Arkansas leads for his services, but any major program could have this talented punter.

Jarod Little has a lot to think about. He has a decision to make over the next few weeks concerning his collegiate career. During his junior season, Little was receiving interest from several colleges: Nebraska, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, and NC State. The football team had just finished an 8-2 campaign and the future for the 3-star recruit was looking bright. "Interest seemed to drop off this year after the team went 2-8," Little told me. Little does have options, though. "Right now, Ouatchita State is recruiting me to play for them. I want to play football in college."

Little had quite an impressive year. He averaged 40 yards per punt, with his longest being 65 yards. "I hit 70% of my punts inside the 30 yard line, 40% inside the 20, and 10% inside the 10. The average hang time for my punts was 4.0 seconds. I had no blocked punts during my career in high school. I had zero touch backs on my punts this year, Little continued. On kickoffs, I had 36 out of 45 go into or past the end zone. I was also 6 out of 15 in field goals this past year, with my longest coming from 45 yards. My career long field goal is 48 yards. I hit that one my sophomore year."

Little is very impressed with the NCSU coaching staff and football program. "I have always dreamed of going to NC State, Little said. Coach Amato is a terrific coach." Little qualified last summer and can play right away no matter where he ends up. Little plans on having his coach contact NC State to see if he can be invited in as a walk-on. With his talent, schools should start taking more notice.
